Carmanah pioneered the design and manufacture of the world's first self-contained Solar LED marine lantern in the 1990s, and their first customer for this lantern was the US Coastguard.
Very soon after the launch of this lantern, Sensor Systems Ltd became the exclusive New Zealand distributor for Carmanah Marine Lanterns.
Since this time, the Carmanah M550 and its predecessor the M502 have established themselves as the preferred product for the Aquaculture industry due to their superior performance and reliability, with 000’s of these lanterns being supplied to a wide selection of customers throughout New Zealand.
With the retirement in 2015 of the founders of Sensor Systems Ltd, a new business Sensor Systems (NZ) Ltd was established. We have been a partner with Carmanah through our associated business for over 10 Years, so we have a very good understanding of the requirements and demands of these applications, and the environments that these products have to operate in. We will continue to provide our customers with the same high customer service and products that they are accustomed to, and will also continue to fully support all products with the full 3 year warranty that all Sabik Marine products come with.
More recently the AToN products that we can offer have been greatly expanded to include the complete range of Marine Aids to Navigation products from Sabik Marine.
As such Sensor Systems (NZ) Ltd is able to offer a comprehensive solution and supply a wide range of Marine Lighting and Aids to Navigation products covering from 1 Nm – 20+ Nm applications, Self-Contained or Wired lanterns, Range Lights, PEL Lights, Sector Lights, as well as remotely monitored applications. So whatever your requirements, we are able to offer world class products that will deliver superior performance and reliability in even the harshest of conditions.
With the 2017 acquisition of both Vega Industries of NZ (Vega) and ETKA brand from Europe, the marine AtoN business of Carmanah is now known as Sabik Marine.
Between these brands, we have over 100 years of combined experience and offer one of the most comprehensive range of AtoN products available from a reputable manufacturer.
Sabik Marine is now the world’s largest manufacturer of marine AToNs. Effective Feb 2019, Sabik Marine is now part of SPX Corporation, based in North Carolina, USA. For more information on SPX , please see their website www.spx.com
